Chop it Up Barbershop's seasoned shearers creatively prune all variety of head topiaries while refereeing intelligent chatter about everything from sports to politics. During a luxurious 30-minute trim, locks bask under clippers’ trendsetting radiance, escaping the taxing responsibility of shielding scalps from sunbeams and wigs in search of a place to roost. Burst free from the shackles of shouted bar-side anecdotes and the Chinese fingertraps of crowded billiards halls to challenge a buddy at the central pool table. The clack of spheres gently weaves through Chop It Up Barbershop's open space, complete with hardwood floors and dynamically designed black and white walls.
TLC Skin Care Clinic employs two women with extensive credentials. Stephanie Negrete, a registered nurse and licensed aesthetician, is a US Army veteran who served in intensive care units during her service. Danell Banks boasts more than a decade in the field of medical aesthetics, and specializes in chemical peels and dermaplaning. Accompanied by an onsite doctor, these two bring cutting-edge skincare treatments to the table. Stephanie uses Botox and dermal fillers to iron out wrinkles, and they both offer custom medical facials and peels to coax out color and detox pores. In addition, their office is equipped with advanced technology that allows them to perform nonsurgical galvanic and radio-frequency treatments that help clients retain their youthful looks.
Inside the softly lit Bonjour Nails & SPA, a long row of plush pedicure chairs with built in baths flank one wall, and strategically lit nail stations fill the other. Patrons entering the serene space can have a seat in the cozy waiting area or peruse the racks of colorful lacquer offered in regular and long-wearing formulas before indulging in meticulous manicures and pedicures. In a private treatment room free from adolescent loiterers, skin mavens ease muscle tension with neck, shoulder, and Swedish massages, or sculpt brows into shapely arches with waxing services.

The salon holds weekend hours, and stays open until 10 p.m. on weekdays so clients can continue tanning long after their solar-powered beds go out.
